My client was faced with a steep sloping set of steps down to her property, making it very unsafe for ladies in high heels and her elderly family.

The original plan was to go over the top with a series of boxes and fill with gravel or concrete. I offered up the suggestion of decking the boxes.

The final result was a very cost effective outcome for my budget conscious client, done in treated pine which will be stained.

After a few weeks the client decided to add a storage area for the rubbish bins which were toppling over on the steep slope. The end result was three more steps and a 3 metre deck, which in the end works well and looks aesthetically pleasing.

The new bin storage addition.
